The End Of The Road

Ummmmm.... now what?

Ummmmm…. now what?

Squirrels are arboreal gymnasts of the most talented order.  They can scurry and leap through trees very quickly and adeptly.  You’d think they’d know the layout of the trees they frolic in like the back of their paws…sqturday squirrel logo

Well, that’s not always the case.  Sometimes, even squirrels can get lost in a tree and come to a dead end that halts their progress.  Take the little guy in the photo above, who confidently strutted his way down this tree branch only to find out it led absolutely nowhere.  He must have made a wrong turn at Albuquerque to have wound up getting lost like this.  Had this critter just stopped and asked for directions, he’d have gotten to the birdfeeder he was looking for… but he also wouldn’t have gotten the honor of being this week’s Saturday Squirrel!  Hang tight on that thin branch, little fella… AAA is on the way with a map…

Have a wonderful weekend, and don’t run into any dead ends!

    No kidding. May that thin branch support him until help arrives.

    • He managed to make his way back from whence he came… I have some very revealing photos in past Saturday features of how squirrels balance themselves on almost impossibly thin branches, they are absolute geniuses in the art of weight distribution!

    I hope the little fella has room to turn around safely.

    I’m always running into dead ends. I hope you have a super fun weekend.

  4. Aw, the little rodent is so freaking cute!

    Definitely further out then I could ever get in a tree at work…and no ropes!

    • I’d break the branch as soon as I stepped out onto it. Squirrels are the bravest critters I’ve ever seen, other than the fact that mine flee as soon as they even think they see me….

    Great picture and great advice! 🙂

  9. That’s a wonderful picture! I’ve seen them do that. The flying ones can just leap right into the air and glide away. The regular little guys have to scurry back and check their GPS 🙂

  10. Is it possible he went there for the view?
